The founding program of Baby DJ, our holiday program has served thousands of needy families throughout Central Florida, and as an independent 501(c)(3) organization we anticipate that participation in the program will expand exponentially.
The Baby DJ Fund allows children from economically disadvantaged families to experience the magic of Christmas. Each year, with the help of so many dedicated volunteers from the community, the Baby DJ fund collects toys and distributes them to families that otherwise would not have a Christmas. Last year over 4,000 kids received toys, food, and Christmas trees through the program.
Through the generosity of those who are fortunate in our community, Baby DJ collects donations of new, unwrapped toys throughout the months of November and December. Businesses all over Central Florida become Baby DJ drop off locations, making it fun and easy to contribute to the cause. At drop off locations, decorated boxes are set out with the Baby DJ name on them, so that individuals may drop off toys at their convenience. The locations of our drop boxes will be published via the World Wide Web, as well as made known through in-kind marketing offered by XL 106.7.
Each year we have received over 2,000 letters requesting assistance, and we anticipate that number increasing significantly now that we have formed as a distinct organization. Once the time period for collecting letters of request has lapsed, Baby DJ volunteers will contact each family to let them know that Santa is on his way to help. It is our aspiration to provide assistance to every family that needs help.
